Water Lane (Para 79). Designed by Hawkes Architecture, this energy efficient grand design, follows passive house principles.

Para 79  New Build

This outstanding Para 79 project was granted planning consent on the 28th October 2020 by Tunbridge Wells Borough Council. The committee unanimously approved the scheme following full support from, The Design Review Panel, local parish council, Tunbridge Wells Borough Council officers and consultees. We're delighted with the decision, especially this being the first time Tunbridge Wells Borough Council have supported a Para 79e scheme in the High Weald AONB and in such an isolated setting!

Water Lane is a 16 acre plot, that we are transforming by extending the ancient woodland gill habitat, re-linking the historic woodland area, whilst providing a robust enhanced natural landscape within. The Para 79 building explores the character of old Kent peg tiled roofscapes and enjoys stunning views across contained meadow glades beyond.

One thing we love about aged tile roofs, is that their geometry and patina softens over time in response to weather and the structure that lies beneath. Here we are exploring these organic flowing curves, developing an architectural language that expresses the tiled roof as a draping cloak over the building that lies beneath.
